In February, we organized our first Weaponized Social event in New York City to explore social interactions and conflict resolution in online spaces. Weaponized Social is an ongoing exploration to rethink the social scripts (i.e., learned patterns of interaction) that shape digital communities.
Join us to grow the global scope of these conversations by participating in Weaponized Social in Nairobi, Kenya on Saturday, May 2. We invite sociologists, data scientists, peace builders, software developers, activists, and anyone passionate about supporting a healthier online ecosystem to join us at the iHub in May.
This event is designed to support collaboration and workshops between participants. We will strive to envision the future of online social scripts and examine things we can do today to de-escalate conflict and create safer spaces in the digital realm. Have questions or want to get involved? Register above and/or contact us: firstname.lastname@example.org
